In response to the killing of George Floyd, Mayor Snider challenged the entire Tigard community to join him on a journey to:

  • Eliminate institutional racism and ensure equity within all city operations and structures
  • Eliminate institutional racism and ensure equity within the Tigard community
  • Improve the lived experience of all persons of color in Tigard such that everyone enjoys the same safety and privilege.
Over 500 community members responded with ideas for how the city can meet the objectives. This input was instrumental in shaping the Council's discussion about racial justice and city action. 

The creation of a Transformation Commission was one of the ideas that grew from community input and Council discussion. After countless hours of refining a proposal, it's time to make sure that the draft Transformation Commission aligns with community expectations.
